A Trip To The Oldest Grocery Store In Wyoming Is Like Stepping Back In Time

If you travel throughout Wyoming, you’ll find yourself running into various Mercantiles in the towns you visit. These general stores were the first grocery stores in the West, and they helped sustain those settling out on the frontier. One of the oldest in the state, the Aladdin General Store (a.k.a. Wyoming Mercantile) has been continually operating for well over 100 years!
